--I came into my local Post Office in Hermann, Mo the other day with “Wait! Oh yes, wait a minute.” With that clue, they were supposed to guess the name of that tune, Please Mr. Postman, recorded by the Marvelettes in 1961 and the Beatles in 1963.
One of the joys in my life is going to our local post office. A smile is coming to my face just thinking about this place.
In recent months, I’ve been playing my version of “Name that tune” with the clerks (Jody and Terri) and whoever is in the back sorting mail. I sing a few words or a line of a song and they have to name the tune. Admittedly, I often make it more difficult for them since I’m usually out of key and not a great singer.
